as of familiar 0.8.2, the Jornada 56x and the Jornada 720 (with flashboard)
are officially supported. I will not build any unofficial snapshots anymore.
Familiar 0.8.2 is still in RC stage, but you can get fresh snapshots from
There is also a feed available. All machines share the same feed. GPE is
 still broken, Opie is, as always, fine.

What has changed since the last release?
- Battery life during sleep is much better (i.e suspend/resume fully
 debugged) - Backlight is flicker-free at all brightness settings
- some other bugs were fixed

I now declare the Jornada 56x linux port suitable for users, not only for
freaks :)

what about sound, IrDA and AC status?
I'm very close to get the sound going, the only thing missing is that stupid
L3 interface. I have no idea at all how this is controlled. Please HP, I need
the datasheets of the ASIC to find out how this is controlled.
I have attached my current audio driver to this email, if you are interested
you can check the comments in the l3_jornada56x_send_data() function which is
probably the last function needed to get the Jornada talking with us.
I did not yet find out how the AC status is checked. (probably also somehow
through the ASIC)
IrDA might work in SIR mode (I will check that soon)
